Where I live: The mountain at the end of the glen.

I want to post one more thing about the cucurbit growing in the lettuce. The soil tested very high in nitrogen, which would interfere with calcium uptake. Specifically, probably ammonium pellets. (Ammonium interferes the most.) The roots probably grew into an undissolved ammonium pellet and, I don't think they can regulate the uptake of it, so it binged on ammonium.

I want to move away from pelletized fertilizers towards powders, soluble, or organic fertilizers because the root uptake from an undissolved pellet can be very high/excessive.
